Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds For Vita Delayed Again

By Spencer . February 13, 2014 . 5:00pm

imagePhantom Breaker: Battle Grounds was pushed back in January and 5pb is delaying the beat ’em up game again. Instead of February 27, the PlayStation Vita version will be released on March 13. It’s only a month late since Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds was originally slated for today, February 13.


The game is out now and fully localized into English on Xbox 360. No word if the Vita version will be published in the West.

    W H A T ? !

      first glance I just thought Lelouch grew long hair in that pic background blended to much with his hair

      • NeoStrayCat

        That too might have also been my reaction to this, would have been nice to release it on the anniversary week from the XBLA version.

  • Jesse

    I’m beginning to think this series has some really bad curse on it. D=

    • NeoStrayCat

      More or less, but this is pretty common to 5pb/Mages themselves, even the 1st PB had to delay its release once (JP version, not the Eng. one that’s in release limbo).

      • Ereek

        I even remember Siliconera having a contest for giving away a copy of the English release of the game.

        I’m kinda sad at how it’s basically in a localization black hole.
        Premature edit: Meaning that we’re never going to get a localized release of the Vita game.

        • NeoStrayCat

          Yeah, I know that feeling there. >_>

          (If only, one day…)

        • Tyler Beale

          If only those lucky people who got review copies would share some of the gameplay (vids, etc) with us…

          • NeoStrayCat

            Actually, there was a chance to play the English version down in Anime Matsuri (in TX) I think 2 years back, how lucky those guys were. Of course you can look it up for vids of gameplay, even the 7-S page has some. (With English win quotes for a character or 2).

  • Tyler Beale

    For a second, I was thinking about the fighting game…

    • NeoStrayCat

      Me too…>_>

      But I’m already playing that anyways (PB:Extra, of course). :)

      • Tyler Beale

        I still want them all to come stateside either way. (both the fighting game and the Vita version of BG)

        I’d also like to have the option to toggle Kurisu’s theme on/off. I have nothing against her, but when I’m co-oping with someone who does use her a lot, it gets rather annoying to hear. I’d much rather hear the stage themes.

        • NeoStrayCat

          Well, the Kurisu theme only happens in the 1st stage (on PB:BG), yeah, I know it seems annoying, but what can you do.

          And yes, English releases of both PB/PB:Ex and also the PSV and soon to be PS4 versions of PB:BG if and when they’ll happen or announce it one way or another.

          • Tyler Beale

            I thought it was the first stage too, but then me (as Mikoto) and a buddy of mine (as Kurisu) went to the next stage, and AFAIK, it played again.

          • NeoStrayCat

            Well, that’s weird, it only plays the regular stage musics after the 1st one, might be a bug in the game, or something. o.o

        • Side note – Phantom Breaker: Extra is very import friendly, don’t wait if you don’t want to on that.

          I’m waiting for a localize on the battle grounds though, for sure, since the Kurisu is DLC and I want the trophies for this on my NA PSN account.

  • Crazy_O

    Last time I asked if it was a worldwide release and people questioned my ability to read, lol. But this time it was included into the article, thank you.

    • NeoStrayCat

      >_>…how it feels right now. (It should happen, I hope.)

  • Kayriss Wins

    Ain’t nothin’ to a boss, I can continue the wait.
